I was unfamiliar with the game, "Pachinko," before I picked up Min Jin Lee's inspiring book, but if you believe in the adage that "life is a game," then her story is such: life. It incorporates so much rich world history, following a Korean family in Japan through generations after war, so you get treated to issues of gender, socioeconomics, and religion along with beautiful prose. Highly recommended!
